- Particle Physics
My main research in particle physics tries to understand the small differences between matter and antimatter, and how that relates to the universe we live in today.I primarily work on the BaBar experiment at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, where I measure CP violation in the decay of beauty mesons. I am also interested in a next generation experiment called SuperB which is proposed to be built in Italy, and the neutrino experiment T2K in Japan. Some kind of new particle physics or astrophysics is required to explain how the equal amounts of matter and antimatter created in the Big Bang evolved into our matter dominated universe. The aim of my research is working toward a better understanding of how this happened.
